Types of Brain Injuries
Some head injuries may cause severe and/or permanent damage to the brain. Under certain circumstances, this damage may eventually be reversed, but unfortunately, they often result in some serious form of permanent impairment:
Skull fractures and skull penetration are the obvious causes of brain injuries, but brain damage can also result from a “closed head injury.” If the brain is bruised due to physical force, blood vessels can break and cause bleeding around the brain. The brain can also be damaged if it swells and presses against the bones of the skull, or if it is deprived of oxygen.
